The year 1968 was a momentous year throughout our world, and some of us remember the México 68 group, a student group that protested against the rule of the PRI on the eve of Mexican Olympics. We received a new batch of wonderful creations from the cardboard- Cartonera books from Mexico. In accordance to our libraries new initiative about telling our stories, we have decided to collect the Cartonera books. These are often overlooked by some as a sort of marginal, ephemeral creations from the cardboard. However, these objects narrate multiple stories. Please click on the image below to get access to the selected images of our Cartonera books from México. The tragic events that took place in Mexico cannot be forgotten.
We also received an new batch of Mexican books from several regional as well as CDMX publishers. These can be seen by clicking on the image below.
